Hero Blend #40: Black Panther, Captain Marvel, And Marvel Studios' Incredibly Bright Future
There are weeks that I struggle to decide what the subject of Hero Blend should be. Do I check in to see what’s happening with the X-Men, or are the developments with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice more interesting? This week there was no struggle.

Hero Blend #38: Marvel Vs. DC - Who Has The More Impressive Slate?
This past summer’s San Diego Comic-Con was a rather disappointing one for comic book movie fans. While many – including myself – had incredibly high expectations of big reveals, we were actually left learning very little big news. This past week, however, has been what I expected Comic-Con to be.

Hero Blend #37: The DC Comics Television Invasion Has Begun
This week saw the debut of both The Flash and the third season of Arrow; Gotham has just aired its third episode on Fox, and soon enough Constantine will be making its big debut on NBC. While there exists the exciting possibility of a shared universe, what’s perhaps even more exciting is the fact that each show is completely different from the others and provides a completely different angle on the comic book genre.

Hero Blend #35:  Deadpool Is Coming! Deadpool Is Coming!
There exists and interesting similarity in the relationships between the comic book movie fans and the Deadpool movie, and Captain Ahab and Moby Dick. Lovers of the Merc With The Mouth have spent years and exhumed quite a bit of energy begging and waiting for the feature to actually happen, but it has long felt like a fruitless venture with no positive outcome in sight. But now everything is different. People: the Deadpool movie is actually happening!

So where are we at?

Hero Blend #33: How Captain America 3 Can Change The Marvel Cinematic Universe
If you’ve been frequenting Cinema Blend recently, you may have noticed an influx in the number of stories about Captain America 3. Part of this is because Captain America: The Winter Soldier arrived on Blu-ray this week and the directors have been on the press tour promoting it, talking about the franchise’s future. But it’s also because we’re still coming down from the thrill ride that was the last Captain America adventure and can’t wait to see more.

Hero Blend #32: Everything You Need To Know About Shazam
This week, Warner Bros. and DC Comics made a huge coup bringing in one of the world’s most popular actors. After many years of waiting for his chance, Dwayne Johnson is now attached to play Black Adam in a new Shazam film. While this is very exciting news for all of the comic book fans out there who have been spent years reading about the two characters, however, the truth is that they don’t exactly have the same kind of name recognition as some of DC's more popular heroes and villains.

Hero Blend #31: Looking Back At A Summer In The Marvel Multiverse
The summer of 2014 has been a fascinating season for the comic book genre as a whole, but it’s even more interesting when you notice that in the past few months we’ve seen three very distinct looks into the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse.

Hero Blend #30: Why An Aquaman Movie Is An Important Risk For DC
Even the most die-hard of fans can probably understand why Aquaman has become a bit of a pop culture punchline. On a completely surface level, having powers that largely concern bodies of water seems a bit limiting (especially when so much of the main action is happening on land), and conversing with animals – particularly fish – can be seen as being kind of silly. In spite of these “issues,” however, Aquaman remains an original Justice League member and has been a mainstay of DC Comics going back to 1941.

Hero Blend #29: DC Comics Just Changed The Future Of Comic Book Movies
Marvel Studios certainly has a jump start on the DC when it comes to building a cinematic universe, having been establishing itself as a brand since 2008, but don’t count the home of Batman and Superman out. In addition to having the big blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scheduled to hit theaters in 2016, they have huge active plans for the entire rest of the decade. And this week we got a very limited peak into exactly what they have in the works.

Hero Blend #27: What To Expect From Marvel, DC And Fox At San Diego Comic-Con 2014
In the world of comic book movies, there is perhaps no bigger event in the world than San Diego Comic-Con. Every year, the major studios arrive in the coastal Southern California city to present previews of their biggest genre and fan-driven projects – and perhaps the most anticipated ones are the big blockbuster superhero films coming out over the next few years.

Hero Blend #26: What Female Thor And The New Captain America Mean For The Marvel Cinematic Universe
While the first 25 episodes of Hero Blend focused solely largely on superhero adaptations both at the movies and on television, this week we’re going back to the source. Marvel has made two huge announcements about a couple of their biggest characters, and it has sent a shockwave through the entire comic book-appreciating world.

Hero Blend #25: 10 Things You Don't Know About Guardians Of The Galaxy
Movies centering on Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and Hulk were risky but necessary ventures when Marvel Studios was first starting out, as those heroes don’t have quite the same pop culture name recognition as heroes like Spider-Man or the Fantastic Four. As we’ve been saying for a few years now, however, the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy is in its own category within this department.

Hero Blend #24: What Should Marvel Studios Do With Hulk?
As successful as Marvel Studios has become building their own huge big screen franchise with heroes like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor, the future of the Hulk remains a big question mark. Released in 2008, The Incredible Hulk has, to date, been the biggest box office disappointment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and as a result is the only movie thus far that doesn’t have either an existing sequel or in active production.

Hero Blend #23: What Doctor Strange And Thanos Mean For Marvel Studios' Future
When it comes to the goings-on at Marvel Studios, nobody knows more than President Kevin Feige. One of the original architects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s the one pulling the strings of just about every move the company makes. His authority makes it so that when he speaks, geeks listen – and this week he spoke A LOT.

Hero Blend #22: The Future Of The DC Cinematic Universe
DC Comics has long had distinct advantage over Marvel where big screen adaptations are concerned. While the latter sold off the movie rights to many of its most popular characters years ago – including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four – the former made a partnership with Warner Bros. pictures years ago that kept all of the company’s characters under one roof. Only now, however, does it appear that DC is finally taking advantage of this fact.

Hero Blend #21: Marvel Studios' Ant-Man Finds Direction
With Edgar Wright no longer involved, Ant-Man is now being written by Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) and directed by Peyton Reed (Bring It On, Down With Love). Clearly these are not two names that the average person immediately thinks of when they are discussion potential comic book movie directors, and as a result the decision has been surrounded by quite a bit of controversy.
